CompreGRAM (English / Chinese)
CompreGRAM is a novel strategy designed by our MOE certified educators which helps your child master English and/or Chinese in a meaningful manner through weekly classes (without homework) covering comprehension, composition, and oral practice.
CompreGRAM (English) - The revised MOE English syllabus requires students to learn language skills via rich texts. At GRAM'S, weekly passages and books are given to the students which are focused at improving our students' reading comprehension. Weekly worksheets that are linked to the given books improve their comprehension skills.
CompreGRAM (Chinese) - In PSLE, comprehension sections add up to a total of 53% of the total marks. At GRAM'S, not only do we focus on open-ended comprehension but MCQs too! We teach students how to overcome challenging passages despite the difficulties they face with vocabulary. Answering techniques and tricks will also be taught to help them score in the comprehension sections.
The pace of learning is dependent of the child and our educators are the facilitators to guide the children. Composition writing is also incorporated in this programme.
It aims at :
To master reading comprehension through individualised tutelage (small class size)
Focused teaching on discreet grammar
To express ideas clearly and persuasively through collaborative interactions ( 1-on-1 group, and teacher-guided) in class
To write fluently in a variety of situations for different purposes and audience
To master contextual vocabulary through weekly readings of varied genres
Syllabus refined to meet requirements of the new primary English/ Chinese syllabus
Exposure to current affairs and global issues to scaffold learning in critical comprehension, oral and written communication skills (especially for the Secondary & IB stream classes),
